Description

This truly exquisite Bohemian glass goblet is entirely crafted of rich, red stained glass, which has been intricately cut with fluting and petal-work to offer contrasting degrees of opacity. The body of the goblet is set betwixt two a lower lip and the upper protruding rim of the cover. Tapered in shape, the goblet body is delicately engraved all around with a landscape scene with stags and deer. The surmounting cover is similarly engraved with curving arabesques and topped with a jewel-like finial.

This glass is very similar in design to this other example.
